Photo Gallery

The Vernadskii Ridge descends diagonally across this Space Shuttle image of northern Paramushir Island (with north to the upper right). The historically active Ebeko volcano lies at the far upper right, north of the linear chain of the Vernadskii (south) and Bogdanovich (north) volcano groups, consisting of small cones and lava domes. The three large smooth-textured surfaces along the Pacific coast of Paramushir opposite the western side of Shumshu Island (far lower right) are preglacial Pleistocene lava flows.
